and the "detroit news." obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> despite chrysler's flat-out denial of romney's china claim, the romney campaign took his lie a step further today with this radio ad in toledo, ohio, which is home to a jeep plant. >> barack obama says he saved the auto industry, but for who? ohio or china? under president obama, gm cut 15,000 american jobs, but they're planning to double the number of cars built in china which means 15,000 more jobs for china. and now comes word that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? >> that provoked general motors spokesman to release this statement "we've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. no amount of campaign politics at its since call worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the u.s. and repatriating profits back to this coun
chrysler had already announced that actually they were expanding. in ohio and in michigan. they weren't pulling out. mitt romney responded to the instant fact checking not by taking it back but by turning that lie into a new ad for ohio. and then he bought extra air time for it in toledo, where ohio workers make jeeps and where being told falsely that your job's being shipped to china might be personally terrifying news. chrysler tried again to set mr. romney straight on this saying, "jeep production will not be moved from the united states to china." did mr. romney take it back? no. he turned it into another ad, a radio ad, again for ohio. and he expanded it to say the entire auto bailout has been a huge failure. that drew another company into the fact check, gm, which had been saved of course by the auto bailout. a gm spokesman telling the press, "we've clearly entered some parallel universe." also from gm, "at this stage we're looking at hubble telescope-like distances between campaign ads and reality." but here's the thing. it is one thing to lie about your record or even your opp
. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. chrysler is investing half a billion in its toledo plant. but mitt romney got up that said defiance, ohio and says they are moving all their jobs. it's embarrassing for mr. romney. why would mitt romney get up in front of 12,000 people in ohio and tell them the auto bailout hasn't helped you at all. your jobs are going to china. i read it somewhere. where's the story? we found it. he was apparently trolling the nether regions of the right-wing press. he found it on a washington examiner blog post, which reported, quote, jeep, an obama favorite, looks to shift production to china. a move that would crash the economy in toledo. this is a misreading of a bloomberg report that was reporting good news. global demand for jeep has risen to the point where they can sell more in china and wants to build jeeps for china in china. this is good news for an american company,
took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> to quote bill clinton, that takes brass. but that ad got four pinocchios from washington post, got pats on fire from politico. so obviously he stopped, right? wrong. he's now buying ohio ads in the ohio city home of the jeep plant. >> now come words that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? the same hard working men and went who were told obama's auto bailout would help them? >> today chrysler's ceo sent a letter to employees saying, i feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position. jeep productions will not be moved from the united states to chi china. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. inaccurate is a kind way of putting it. when corrected time and time again, governor romney has walked away from the truth. he hasn't fibbed, he hasn't mud idea the facts. he lied. and it's a lie he is selling to the people of ohio. it's desperate behavior from a de
by lee iacocca and the detroit news. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler into china aen the italians. >> that ad is drawing an awful lot of heat that chrysler is outsourcing its jeep production into china. they say they have no intention of shifting american production overseas but there are talks of putting a jeep assembly plant in china to serve the growing demand, not to close one here in the united states in order to make way for the one in china. for the first time in 40 years iowa's largest new hampshire endorsing a republican. they cited his flesh economic vision. although they supported president obama in 2008, they're saying romney is more likely to work across the aisle. the paper asked which candidates could forge the compromise. when it's asked like that, mitt romney is the one they believe. romney has made rebuilding the economy his number one campaign priority and rightly so. that's from the des moines register. obama deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter dismissed the endorsement yesterday morning. >>> it was a little surprising to read t
at the same time scaring chrysler workers in the very same state with a completely false ad that they're about to lose their jobs? >> well, you know, martin, in times of trouble like this and times of chaos, it's nice to know there are some things you can rely on, right? like fox news to make light of the president in this awful way, mitt romney to be disingenuous and use anything for a political opportunity. so in that sense, i guess like it's nice and comforting -- >> almost reassuring that the world hasn't changed. >> exactly. so nothing has changed, right. mitt romney is still mitt romney or at least the mitt romney that's always kind of changeable. i found that sort of fake relief rally, whatever it is, to be pretty offensive and wrong-headed. the red cross is put in this awkward position of saying we don't need canned goods, thank you very much, mr. 1950s. you know, like we need money, we need people to donate blood. and i think that sort of is mitt romney sort of small as it were, right? like to not only do something so craven but to do it in a way that's not even helpful on a small sca
misleading and slammed by gm and chrysler. let me play it. >> they're running the most scurrilous ad in ohio. i want you to listen. one of the most flagrantly dishonest ads i can remember in my political career. >> so mark, a spokesperson of gm said it's completely untrue, to su miz the statement here in front of me. but this is about ohio, the ad about ohio and president obama still leads in ohio. >> the pushback you are seeing of general motors as well as chrysler is pretty extraordinary in a presidential campaign with major companies basically say that one campaign is being inaccurate in the tv ads. tamron, this has to do everything with ohio. this has all to do with the auto bailout and a reason president obama is doing better with white voters in ohio than might be in places in the south or battlegrounds like in virginia and florida, has to do with the auto bailout. getting support from a lot of people whose jobs are tied to the auto industry. another thing benefiting president obama has to do with the fact labor and the politics of labor very big flash points in the last couple of year
terrible, but it's false. did you hear that, false, what he just said. chrysler which was bought by fiat said it's not taking any jobs from ohioans, it's adding jobs. it also plans on resuming jeep production in china for chinese drivers. in other words, overseas production and overseas sales, not moving jobs from the united states to china. but then comes this whopper of a romney ad. customarily when one of the campaigns launch a commercial, they send us press releases, not this one. this started running unannounced in ohio and suggests that jobs are moving to china. let's take a look. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee iacocca and "the detroit news." obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> well, they're not backing down, of course. they're also running misleading radio ads on the same topic. in citie
is. when chrysler ceo marchionne says they're not moving jobs to china that is big town home town pamer news and when you as a candidate lie to the hometown crowd about the hometown news you cannot expect that lie to float. and it is not floating. the "columbus dispatch fact check" says, "oh, boy." cleveland plain dealer's er89 says "flailing in ohio romney rolls out jeep ploy." say wau want about mr. romney's overall relationship with the truth throughout this campaign. say he's prone to gaffes or misstatements, call them fibs, call them lies. now that he is finishing his campaign in ohio with a lie about ohio that ohio knows is a lie, you can just call this one a mistake. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great night. >>> the good news for mitt romney tonight is the massive storm has made everyone forget about his secret tax returns. the bad news for mitt romney is the massive storm has made everyone forget about mitt romney. >> on the ground in the middle of the devastation, president obama will tour new jersey. >> the october surprise, bipartisa
, the numbers, the at least from chrysler, they felt so compelled about what mitt romney was saying on the campaign trail that they issued a statement to say, not only are they not moving jobs to china, in fact, the company has nuns announced plans to hire an additional 12,000 workers in detroit. that will contradict what you say are concerns about auto workers? >> i don't see it as a contradiction at all. i think it is a testament to american ingeneral new at this time that people move forward to manufacture in this country. epa and government regulators are making it more and more difficult every single day. this is what we hear from so many of our manufacturers, large and small. >> let me really quickly play for you a clip that the president -- from the president's interview with joe and mica over the weekend. >> there's no doubt that the first order of business is to get our deficits and debt under control. the good thing is there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at end of the year. we have the sequester looming. that wouldn't be the right way to do thing, takes a ma
to help the auto industry. he is supported by lee iacocca and the detroit news. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians that are going to build jeeps in china. >> romney's new ad running in ohio claims that president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. interesting. because romney preferred a managed bankruptcy for the car companies. he claimed that jeeps are going to be built in china by italians. the ceo of chrysler found that whopper too much to bear and issued a statement to say, . >> who will be best for the auto industry? it may not be the guy whose car ad is full of holes. joining me from detroit is jonathan cone. >> thanks for having me on. when we talk cars, i get out my transformers and have this whole thing about president obama being optimist prime. is the car issues going to be the thing that turns ohio voters? >> it is a huge issue. in ohio, 1 of every 8 jobs is tied to the auto industry. the voters there, they understand how important the auto rescue, the obama's decision to provide chrysler and g.m. loans. they know how important that
a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee aiko can and gm. he sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >>> i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. >> mitt romney did actually say he'd let detroit go bankrupt and he opposed the bailout and said if we did it it you could kiss the automotive industry good-bye and that didn't really work out. when they endorsed him, they said in spite of him screwing up so badly. the point where they say barack obama sold gm to italians who are going to build jooirps in china. this appears to be a spin on this ad from ohio last week. >> i saw a store today, one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep. now owned by the italians, thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america and i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair and if it's fair america will win. >> that line about jeep moving american jobs to china? moving all production to china? that is not true. chrysler is not moving its production to china. that is not at al
have gm and chrysler, their chief furious over this line of attack centered around the auto industry. i want to play what the president said today regarding the auto ads from the romney campaign. >> you have folks that work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried, asking, is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china? the reason they make these calls is because governor romney is running an ad that says so. except it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. >> and anne, in addition to not being truce, you see people in ohio taking it as cynical. they make people believe it's bad and horrible and somebody in china is about to take your job. >> that's the real risk for governor romney in running an ad like this, although obviously he had his reasons for doing so. the campaign obviously seeing ohio as does everyone as being it is lynchpin to be elected. anything he could do, if there are voters who are all right feeling skeptical of the auto bailout who might buy this, that's who this is targeted at. this is a fairly significant backlash, questioning of the fact
took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeep in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> that is actually an official campaign ad. rana, does this argument hold water with the ohio voters, that the president was actually -- is outsourcing american jobs and didn't actually save the american auto industry? >> i'm going to guess no. in part because you know, making jeeps in china might be assembling them in china to sell to chinese middle-class consumers who are actually bringing money then back to the u.s. >> as every car company does. >> as every car company does. and that's actually an important point. and, you know, we often try to portray these countries as job stealers but they're products for u.s. markets. >> i don't think there's any doubt like the ad falls apart on the details, it does, but how big a scare word is china. it's a big scare word in places like ohio and not something that's happened in the last year, three years, five years, these are areas of the
. >> the facts, they speak for themselves. president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. taxpayers still stand to lose $25 billion from the president's politically managed bankruptcy. these companies, chrysler in particular, we know their story, are now choosing to expand manufacturing overseas. these are the facts. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious. congressman ryan. congressman ryan's caught it. let me tell you the facts. congressman ryan voted with us. he voted in the congress with us. >> joining me now, msnbc's joy reid and robert reich, former clinton labor secretary, university of california at berkeley economics professor, and author of "beyond outrage." joy reid, do you know florida? has no one told jeb bush this thing about his brother's lack of popularity with the american public? >> poor jeb keeps trying. he tried it at the convention too. he just tries to slip george in there every so often. >> you can't blame a brother, though. >> he loves his brother. you know, he keeps trying to get him back on the stage, and republicans keep saying no,
and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians building jeeps in china. >> chrysler issued a statement last week saying jeep has intention of shifting production of jeep models out of the north america to china. this president said this election is about trust. we have chrysler saying that romney was flat-out wrong, but he's still pushing this issue. do you believe that governor romney for the readers of "the register" is the candidate that should be trusted? >> it's great to be with you today. speaking as the editor and also as a member of the editorial, i want to preface that this was a five-member editorial board that sfent an awful lot of time looking at the candidates, the campaigns, the issues and platforms and visions and spent a lot of time being deliberative and thoughtful in our decision as it relates to the endorsement. at end of the day what we've heard repeatedly, thomas, for several, several months, through this whole cycle is the importance of the economic recovery in iowa. that's what our readers and voters in iowa are most concerned about. after all this th
worst. and chrysler's ceo said it's simply not true. we know the truth, mitt. >> that's exactly what i said. the headline you read which is let detroit go bankrupt. >> when romney airs these grossly false ads, it opens up the door obviously for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke
call for desperate measures for mitt romney. >> sold chryslers to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. ohio, i'm not ready to give up on the fight. >> i don't know how close you're watching the president's campaign. my guess is you're not seeing a lot of msnbc, but if you -- i'm not familiar with precisely with exactly what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it is. ♪ >> we are in the final four days to the presidential election and it's all come down to four words with four letters, ohio, ohio, ohio, ohio. in the next four days the president and mitt romney will visit ohio on no less than six separate occasions. the president has just wrapped -- actually he's just about to start his third rally in the state and you can feel the energy of this final push with a fired up crowd and a president ready to go. >> you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of cha
. president obama's revile of general motors and chrysler which in all likelihood would have been liquidated had his administration not kept them above water with a government-led rescue in 2009 is pretty popular in ohio. popularity is an obstacle to mitt romney who opposed a key part of the rescue when initiated by the bush administration and now finds himself with a stubborn polling deficit in a state he more or less has to win to win the presidency. so, the romney campaign has e a escalated their attempts to rewrite the history of the auto rescue and are now simply making things up about the current auto industry that exists today. they claim that president obama sold chrysler to italians who plan to build jeeps in china. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama, fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee iacocca and "the detroit news." obama took gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every amer
that chrysler has plainly said is untrue. >> this morning before he left florida and went back to washington, he said, you know, of all the things governor romney has said, that probably hurts my feelings the most. he said you know, i never had any money when i was a kid. and the first new car i ever owned i was 30 years old and it was a jeep. i would never move jeep to china. now it turns out that jeep is reopening in china because they made so much money here they can afford to do it and they are going on with their plans here. they put out a statement today saying it was the biggest load of bull in the world that they would ever consider shutting down their american operations. they are roaring in america thanks to people like the people of ohio. >> he's running an ad in this state saying that, saying that president obama made the companies go bankrupt is now -- gave the industry the italian who's are selling it to the chinese. whoa. whoa. as we say in my faith, bless me father for i have sinned. i mean what are you talking about? i have never seen anything like that. it's an absolutely paten
're behaving in ohio with the ads they've put on, this whole thing about chrysler and jeep. they're behaving -- there's an element of apparent desperation on their part. they seem to be throwing a lot of stuff at the wall in ohio which suggests a certain amount of if not desperation, they have a sense that they're losing there. >> mark, you look at the quinnipiac poll this morning, and you see it's still a five-point lead. we've got less than a week till the election. you look at the internals. over 50% of the people there think that in ohio, the economy's getting better. i'm underlining this. because i'm not saying mitt romney can't win. but if you take ohio off the table for mitt romney and it's really close, it's really, really close to being off the table for mitt romney unless there is some massive reaganlike landslide the last week, then suddenly mitt romney's pathway to 270 gets very, very narrow. he's got to run the board or he's got to expand the map. >> and don't forget virginia which also, according to most of the recent polling data, is not at all a sure thing for the president,
likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish the record of creating jobs in the united states. remember, this new romney jeep ad claims that all factual statements in it, the implication is different, but the statements themselves say jeep is being built in china, which the ad says for the implication, of course, is this idea that they're moving some operations out of ohio to china and that's what both gm and chrysler are fighting back on is that perception. ohio papers pummeling romney for the ad. they called it a ploy in an editorial yesterday and said romney is flailing in ohio. and don't forget that detroit, where the fr

fiction that the president is moving the production of chrysler jeeps to china. something chrysler itself has denied. still, as you'd expect, the advert keeps running. joining us now is brad woodhouse communications director for the democratic national committee. brad, good afternoon to you. >> hi, martin. sw >> even the chrysler spokesman said a professional acrobat couldn't achieve the misrepresentation of the truth that mr. romney achieved. >> this is incredible. there's no surer sign that mitt romney is behind in this race, that he's behind in ohio, and that he's heading towards a loss in this race than the fact of this ad. it is such a blatant lie, it is such a blatant falsehood. someone who was in a stronger position politically wouldn't take this type of risk. he's never recovered -- go ahead. >> doesn't this ad prove that the romney campaign is basically predicated on fearmonger and lying given that nothing they say about the jeep production is true? >> well, nothing of it is true. they have -- their whole campaign has been predicated upon fearmongering. they have lied about the s
of the -- the ceos of chrysler and gm had to come out and say you're lie being us and you're going to hurt our sales with your lies. he's not really keeping up with business there, but i have to tell you also, earlier this week he got subsumed by the sandy coverage as it should have, but i put out a story with another videotape in which mitt romney talking to a fund-raiser earlier this year says, you know, there's a better business environment in china than the united states. well, why is that? it's because they have no worker protections, no environmental -- >> they have no human rights, david. >> and low wages. so is he saying he wants to bring us back to that point? like to the days of cal coolidge as joy suggests? >> david, yes. >> there's a lot going on that doesn't compute and when it does compute it's rather scary. >> there's something called the moonlight magnolia theory of economics. the south practices it right now. when you strip away unions and you can lower wages, businesses are more profitable. that's why wall street -- you see the stock market tick up when companies lay people off bec
's lie that chrysler is moving american jobs to china. >> you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. companies like g.m. and chrysler, they put a lot of time and effort and money into building up their brand and letting americans know that the american auto industry is back. and we don't want suddenly a bunch of ads saying stuff that's not true. you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i know how. >> president obama concluded his speech this way. >> and that's why i need you, ohio. to make sure that no matter who you are or what you look like or where you come from, what your last night is, where you started, no matter what, you can make it in america if you try. that's why i'm asking for your vote and if you're willing to work with me and knock on some doors with me and make some phone calls with me and turn out to the polls with me. we'll win this election. we'll win ohio. >> new polls show
in ohio right now. you look at that chrysler ad, you look at this desperate republican ad trying to convince black folk that the republican party are on their side. they speak down to voters and let voters understand the ways in which politics gets really, really messy at this stage of the game. >> it's not just the campaign, it's the character of the man. that's what's being exposed to ari's point. >> yes. >> by these ads. is that not true? if you willfully lie repeatedly to the electorate, what does that say about you as an individual? >> it doesn't speak very highly of you. again, i'm all about authenticity and truth in politics. i know that seems really, really crazy in the 21st century. i think the american electorate is with me on this. at the end of the day mitt romney has played with the truth fast and furious, as we said, many times on your show. this is the result, the six-point deficit in ohio. >> despite that misleading g-pad, he hasn't made any inroads in ohio, as we've heard. we've heard about this absurd ad in spanish to latino voters where there's the president li
romney this week. he's gotten himself into a battle with gm and chrysler. he said that chrysler is going to shut down jeep production in the state of ohio and scared a bunch of workers in the region. the auto companies have made clear that's absolutely not true. i think we've seen a little bit of desperation in his closing message. >> and we have seen a slight swing for the president in our new swing state polls. i'm sure you saw what karl rove wrote today. in the last days of the presidential race, he says they favor mitt romney. the democrats are making a mistake because they're counting on inconsistent voters who may well not turn out. could turn out be the difference in this election? does karl rove have a point? >> well, i think turnout will make the difference in this election. republicans are betting on the fact that our coalition won't show up at the polls. if you look into those early vote numbers, they already have. we have a 60,000 vote lead in the state of iowa. across the country, it's a very diverse electorate so far. there are a lot of young people voting. there are a lot
